First there was the original, Heath Ledger. His performance was praised by one and all. Then came the George W. Bush cover on Vanity Fair and the Right shrugged and said that was rude -- but inaccurate. We all knew that W. was actually Batman.
So now there's the ubiquitous Obama as Joker poster and the Left is up in arms. Immediately they started sputtering -- how terrible! Why.. why... it's RACIST!
Well, despite eloquent and empassioned arguments by legitimate commentators, like the article
by Philip Kennicott in the Washington Post yesterday -- I'm sorry but it's a stretch. A huge one.
First they tried to argue that it was a black man in white face. Oh, wait. It's nothing like the opposite of a white man in black face, where a white man is performing a denigrating portrayal of a black man. No it's a man in a clown face. An evil clown.
So, they try to say things like, as in the article above,
"He is black and he is identified with the inner city, a source of political instability in the 1960s and '70s, and a lingering bogeyman in political consciousness "
Ok, raise your hand if you looked at that poster and thought to yourself -- yes, he's like the Joker because he is black and therefore urban and therefore dangerous.
Now raise your hand if you thought -- yes, he's like the Joker because of the things he has done. He is single-handedly trying to take down our way of life with his reckless and dangerous actions.
Yup. IT"S UNANIMOUS!

I’m still waiting for someone to make an 0bama Joker poster that says:
“Because Washington deserves a better class of criminal.”
And another one of 0bama Joker burning up a pile of money.

This debate gets muddled. All Gen-X, Y, and Z enthusiasms aside,
the original and real Joker appeared a long time before Heath Ledger
and the dumbed-down '80s deconstruction of Batman via Burton & Co.
The younger generation is getting ripped off again.
If clowns are off limits, Franken and the Dems are in real trouble.
Let's have Franken explain logically in a serious tone why Obama
should not be portrayed as a clown.
